Lockie Leonard - Episode 26
With only two days before they're due to pack up and head for Sydney, the Leonards have some big farewells to bid. Saying goodbye to his loyal comrades is one of the hardest things Sarge has ever had to do, made all the harder given his belief that his poetry-based approach to policing has failed. Mum, meanwhile, has a whole town to say goodbye to as she broadcasts her final radio show. Despite his much-mentioned excitement about the scientific possibilities of Sydney, it appears Phillip is struggling to sever his ties with Joe and Cyril. Phillip blames his tears on a delayed allergy to Cyril. And as for Lockie? With every farewell he makes, he seems to be given one more reason to stay. Perhaps it's true what they say; maybe you can have your cake and eat it too.

Setting Sail - Ep 4 Wooden Ships and Iron Men (the West)
Independently at first, the world's great seafarers developed the technology to venture out at sea. In time, they acquired the ability to cover long distances, and return safely. They explored far from their homes, in search of new lands and trades, or new ideas. But in the end, only the West used that ability to rule not only the sea, but much of the world. Though they set out after the others, western sailors used the delay to their advantage. Combined with powerful religious and commercial motives, their technology proved unstoppable. Within a few hundred years, western ships and sailors spread all over the world, and dominated its trade in the name of god and greed. But the ships that allowed them to do so would not last forever. During the 19th century the era of sail came to a gradual close. No longer able to compete with steam, the West's sailing vessels gradually disappeared from the seven seas. Some were left to rot on distant shores, most never escaped the trip to the breakers. Today there are but a few survivors left to remind us of the age of sail. But they remind us of so much more. Locations: Greece (Athens, Santorini, Crete), Denmark, Belgium, Portugal (Lisbon, Sagres), the Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States.
